recipe: BBQ Baked Chicken
now that i'm doing the self-employed thing....well, 8 days of working life left! i will need to find more ways to scrimp and save until i start making money *lol*. number one way is by cooking at home. i like cooking and cook most of the time anyway but it is fun to do it on a tight budget because it forces you to get creative. and we are trying to maintain our weight so being health-conscious is important to us as well.
this BBQ baked chicken was super easy and light. matt LOVES BBQ anything as long as it's sweet so i used a honey bbq sauce. toss with a bunch of local summer veggies (zucchini, squash, tomatoes, red onions, carrots). toss with olive oil and season well. for a whole chicken, bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees to render the fat (this gives you crisp skin), then 15 minutes per pound thereafter for perfect chicken.
